The construction industry continues to evolve with heightened awareness of safety hazards and a push towards safer work environments and practices. The challenge for all contractors is to maintain a reasonable balance of productivity, quality and safety to ensure an injury-free outcome. When schedule and budget are compressed and greater emphasis is placed on production, injuries are more likely to occur.
Liberty Mutual Insurance and The Center for Construction Research and Training annually recognize innovative evidence-based technologies, work practices, and programs (interventions) designed to reduce or eliminate construction hazards that lead to injuries and pain in the construction industry with the Safety Innovation Award in Construction.
The Hilmerson Safety Rail System™ was awarded “Safety Innovation Award in Construction 2021 Finalist” for its ability to improve job site safety through risk reduction.
